Mon amour, on va se flâner (Beauty of the World)

“Today, let us forget it all.”  He said, meaning the bankruptcy, criminal charges and upcoming court appearances.

She looked at him in the mirror where she was washing her face.  Even her skin was weary.

“Train tickets to Vieux Port.”  He no longer had his cars, or driver’s license for that matter.  “Première classe.

“Remember when we first met?  Strolling, feeling the Old City.”  He took her hand.  “Viens avec moi, mon amour.  On va se flâner.”
